Second baseman Gordon Beckham could miss a few games after he left Thursday’s contest early with right quad strain.

Jeff Keppinger replaced the White Sox regular second baseman in the field to start the bottom of the fourth inning.

Beckham who went 1-for-2 before he exited said he has played through the quad strain for a few days. But during a third-inning groundout Beckham said the coaching staff noticed and removed him as a precaution.

“What I felt tonight I felt in other games maybe a little worse I don't know” Beckham said. “It's been something that's been off and on that I've been playing through it. It's not something that seems to not let me do when I want to sometimes. When I get up to full speed I definitely feel it.”
